Ingredients

  • 4 cups/1 L lukewarm water
  • 1 pound/500 g chestnut flour
  • Pinch salt
  • Serving suggestion: Serve with grilled sausages and creamy ricotta cheese.

Directions

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Slowly add the flour into the pot in a steady stream until level with the water. With a spoon, create a well in the center. Allow to cook for approximately 10 minutes and then stir for an additional 5 minutes until you have a creamy polenta-like texture.

The polenta will thicken and bubble resembling a porridge-like consistency. If there are any lumps break them up and continue to stir until creamy.

Serve the polenta with grilled sausages or creamy ricotta cheese.
